One week before the presidential election, a Congressional committee released Obama administration emails that showed a pattern of political pressure from President Barack Obama and others in his administration. The emails indicate favoritism toward Democrat politicians and donors in the awarding of federal energy loans.
The mainstream media chose not to report on the emails, even though just days before their release, Obama had flatly stated in an interview that politics played no part in awarding the loans
In the old days of hard-nosed journalism, i.e., before the Age of Obama, if the president was caught lying about his involvement in a government payola scandal, it would have been front page news and led the evening newscasts of the broadcast networks.
Even with the release of an email in which an official says what, in a different media era, would become a catch phrase for administration corruption: “What’s a billion, anyhow?”
Even with the release of emails showing President Obama personally involved in awarding loans.
Even with the release of emails explicitly stating loans were given to help Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid win his reelection bid in Nevada in 2010.
Even with emails showing Obama donors got help from Vice President Biden in securing loans.
Even with all that and an election on the line, there was no coverage from the mainstream media. The emails were only reported by a trio of conservative media outlets: The Washington Examiner, Human Events and The Daily Caller.
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform released the emails, accompanied by a summary memorandum, on October 31. The emails and memorandum and other material were also made available to the public on the Internet.
Excerpts from the memorandum that failed to move the mainstream media (emphasis added):
